Mauve Swarovski jewellery

Today I have been working with these mauve Swarovski pearls and purple Swarovski crystals to make a one off 16 inch necklace with matching earrings. The necklace has a sterling silver clasp and the earring hang from sterling silver ear hooks. I can re make the necklace to a longer length if requires or I could make a bracelet to match. This set would be fabulous for smart day wear and would complete a mauve 'Mother of the Bride' outfit beautifully.

'Ella' an alternative range

My last two posts have introduced the necklace and earrings for two of my limited ranges 'Jessica' and 'Bethany'. As both of these ranges have the same Swarovski pearls and crystals in their designs I decided to make an alternative range with earrings and a necklace that would go with either 'Jessica' or 'Bethany' bracelet - this range is very elegant in its simplicity just a single Swarovski pearl and Swarovski crystal drop, the earrings are on sterling silver ear hooks and the necklace is on a 16 inch sterling silver chain - I can make the chain to any length required.

'Jessica' bracelet - first of a limited edition range of jewellery

Firstly apologies for my rather long absence on here - I have been busy with workshops and events over the summer and I have also been planning a small number of 'limited editions' ranges. This marks a small change in direction for me as the majority of my jewellery items have in the past been one off items - 
The first new range is called 'Jessica' and today I am going to share the bracelet - I will also have a necklace and pair of earrings in this range too and these will be have their own post on here too. but for now please let me introduce to you 'Jessica' the bracelet 



'Jessica' is made with Swarovski pearls and Swarovski crystals and is finished off with a sterling silver clasp and extension chain - especially beautiful for weddings or confirmation jewellery , but could equally be worn as an every day or evening wear accessory too

fashion bride shoot

It is always good to share a new 'First' so today I want to share this 'first' for my jewellery - I was approached by the extremely talented photographer Helen Elizabeth asking if I have ever considered loaning my jewellery out for a fashion shoot, I have been tweeting with Helen for some time now and familiar with some of her photography and after looking at her website  I was very happy to post a couple of my items over to her.
Helen sent me photos of the dresses and models with a description of what she had planned and I chose the jewellery I thought would be best suited for each, which actually meant I had to knit a choker especially for it.
I am thrilled with these beautiful images - it isn't that often I get to see my jewellery being worn by my brides and I always find it interesting to see how they look with the dress!
Hopefully this will be the first of many fashion shoots

Just off to my workroom for a while

Last night the football was on, it may well have been a Sunday evening but when all that is on TV is a football match between two foreign teams who I have absolutely no interest in you can imagine my delight when a design idea suddenly popped into my head - what great timing! - I walked out of the living room stating I was just going up to my workroom for a while - when I returned the football was almost over and a new necklace plus a pair of matching earrings had been made!
The necklace is made on sterling silver chain with Swarovski crystal pearls and the earring are again made with the same Swarovski crystal pearls and sterling silver ear hooks - I have made the pair as a single pearl but I can add other pearls to make any length required!
